    Is Johnny Depp Returning To ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Franchise For $301 Million? Here’s The Truth

    A pirate’s life may not be for Johnny Depp anymore. Reports have surfaced that the actor would probably return to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ movie franchise. Apparently, this decision was taken by the actor after an apology letter and a whopping offer of a $301 million deal.

    But is this enough? The 2018 op-ed written by his ex-wife Amber Heard for Washington Post had harsh consequences for Depp. Though the article didn’t mention his name, it was quite visible who the article was about. He got fired by Disney from his role in their movie. So, is the actor ready to put all that behind? Let’s find out.

    The Hollywood star played Captain Jack Sparrow in all five movies of Disney. The last one was the 2017 film ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.’

    It has been noted that “Disney is very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp” – a source told PopTopic close to four years after the actor parted ways with Disney. “They are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character.”

    Though Depp fans shouldn’t get too excited as a representative for the actor told NBC News, “This is made up.” Back in May, ‘Pirates’ producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who is now working on two more films, was asked if Depp would be back for future projects. “Not at this point,” he told The Sunday Times. “The future is yet to be decided.” The comments were made when Depp was in the middle of his defamation trial.

    During the trial, the ‘Edward Scissorhands‘ actor shared that he has no interest in returning for more ‘Pirates’ movies. Heard’s attorney Ben Rottenborn asked the actor, “The fact is, Mr. Depp if Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a Pirates of the Caribbean film? Correct?” Depp replied, “That is true, Mr. Rottenborn.

    A Virginia jury later ruled that Heard was liable for defaming Depp. The jury awarded $10 million to Depp in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. As for Heard’s countersuit, the jury awarded the actress $2 million in compensatory damages.

    Depp is now all set to join his ‘Hollywood Vampires’ bandmates – classic rock icons Alice Cooper, Joe Perry, and Tommy Henriksen – for an overseas tour next year.
